Parc Balneaire du Prado, Marseille

2.5
#8 of 8 in Parks in Marseille
Facing The Prado Seaside Park, Parc Balneaire du Prado, is a gorgeous shoreline constructed by Defferre. It was construsted keeping in mind the disturbance the overflowing waves caused to vehicles on the adjacent roads. The changes made have created a pleasant environment where it is not uncommon to see families walking enthusiasts and kites to indulge their passion. The beach is clean and is monitored everyday. It hosts a number of special carnivals and events every year.

    Ten acres of beaches of sand and fine gravel give city in 1975, with artificial reefs and a seaside Park built using underground excavation materials. Ample parking, for those arriving by car or by bike. But it's nice to also reach these shores with the bus line 83, which travels along the coast from the Vieux Port. Free beaches-we went on that named Prado South-have an efficient lifeguard service (two lifeguards always on station), clean bathrooms, free hot showers, first aid services and ... recovering lost property. Behind the beaches even fitness areas. Also good bathing water quality.

    An urban redevelopment made many aa does but that always hits me for the capacity of local administration to bring a beach near the port plus the Mediterranean at levels suitable for everyone, especially families. congratulations!

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
